The incident happened at around 1am on Sunday, October 3rd at the taxi area on Ball Street. One of the women suffered a dislocated jaw as a result of the attack.

Police have only now appealed for help in identifying the man.

PC Craig Brown from Fleetwood Police said: “To think that a group of women complaining about two people jumping a queue ended up being assaulted is shocking.

“We have been on with a number of enquiries to trace this man but unfortunately haven’t been able to. We are determined to find out who he is and so I am asking anyone who may recognise him to make contact with us.”
